30-12-2019 Another day and then 2019 is history. Just quickly some news from the nearly "old-year". On December 21 the 130th Winner Show was organized, for the first time in 130 years it was named Christmas Winner and Amsterdam was forced exchanged for Gorinchem. We had Raffaele and Sebastiana along, there was Steef with Ambrogio. Danish judge was impressed by Raffaele (Bes), she repeated several times that she really was the best of the day but was disappointed quite a bit that Bes was not handeld well in the show ring... Fortunately she desided to award Bes with Best Bitch, two Championship points and Bes, who is indeed inexperienced at shows, obtain the title 2019 Winster. Sebastiana won the title Veteran Winster 2019 and got Best Veteran. Ambrogio got the Reserve CAC CACIB and got the two shifted championship points. A great show day for us!

12-12-2019 On December 11, our dear "Duffy" gave birth to her puppies. Upcoming period we will try to post daily a report on the web with some pictures. The puppy page is easily found under PUPPY NEWS if you want to take an instant look. At this moment we start up page PUPPY NEWS but there are already some other active pages with pictures and reports. Meanwhile, we have called all the people who we had on our list. This brought joy but also some disappointment because we had more people on the list than we have puppies. In about two and a half weeks "strangers" are welcome to visit our home. Then it is done with our quiet time. We now ready to enjoy our (read Duffy X Oren) babies.

17-11-2019 We have visit the veterinarian with our "Duffy" Dama Bianca di Ala D'Oro to do an ultra sound to she if she is carrying. We are very happy with the news that she is pregnant. Around December 10, we expect puppies from her. From what we saw in the ultra sound, a large litter is expected. Now another few weeks of patience. Meanwhile, we take our preparations. All aranged all our vacation and days off so that we will be home all the time, until the puppy's are eight weeks old. Of course, also this time we have made a puppy page. You can visit the page, click here>>>
We will put our experiences and photo's at this puppy page, to share with the rest of the World. In the picture you see Duffy, photo made yesterday, she was 39 days pregnant and must still maintain for about 24 days. We think Duffy shows her pretty belly well.

23-10-2019 Last weekend was the VISJ Fieldwork Contest. Edda da Dama di Ala D'Oro had a great course and showed how good her nose is. The point was neat, nothing to to criticize. Duffy Dama Bianca di Ala D'Oro had a nice-course, she also came to point, her bird took off because of a little too low head position in this short grasslands, but happily it did not go on the wings. She managed to secure the game eventually. The field judge PA Gudmundsson thought Edda had a flawless turn and rewarded her with the highest score, 10 points. She became the day winner! Duffy got 9 points, she became 2nd of the day. Duffy has obtain the club title VISJ Bello & Bravo 2019 she got the highest combined points in show and trail. Besides Edda and Duffy five of our dogs entered the field trail. Something we are very proud of. Click here for a photo impression of the day>>>.

10-10-2019Our "Duffy" Dama Bianca di Ala D'Oro is mated by "Oren" Calabrone Aladoro. Click on the picture for more information about this beautiful combination. If all goes well we know about four weeks if Duffy is actually pregnant. For now it looks good. Ten days ago we were with Oren, Brogio and Bess to the veterinary practice in Enkhuizen to make HD and ED photos. This week we got the good results and we are very pleased and proud. We thank Veterinarian Lub for her expertise and the high quality of the photos they always make. Also a compliment to her husband who is her solid assistant in radiography. We have more people to thank, also a big compliment for a Kennel Club employee. "Bas" Sebastiana Bruna di Ala D'Oro did not receive a message about her official Club Winner title, which she won on 25 May 2019. Also we received no invitation to the Top Dog of the Year Show 2019. After some research by the friendly Kennel Club employee, she found that "Bas" results and official title were not at all submitted. The Kennel Club empoyee did her very best to solf all the mistakes made by the BIC. We are still waiting for a sincere apology from the BIC secretary, but do not think it's coming.

Very disappointing, but also no reason to be depressed. Next time we will try again. Now we can concentrate on new plans some nice holiday's, travel to nice and interesting places, since we now have some spare time left.

26-04-2019This month we have been to Italy to take part in the show and field competition, organized by the SABI. The SABI celebrates his seventieth birthday. First, it seemed that by our work schedules we both could not present, however with help from co workers changing shifts I could go . Debby wanted to keep me company on this trip. After to have picked up first Salvatore we went full packed towards Tuscany. We had Sebastiana and Duffy registered for both show and field contest. This was the third anniversary of the SABI where we participated with our dogs. 1999, 2009 and now so 2019. Our two girls did just fine again this year. Sebastiana was 2nd excellent in a well-stocked champion class. Very proud of this result. The next day on the field contest Duffy worked very sophisticated on a couple of partridges, she pointed the female in the end nicely and neatly went down on my command when the Partridge fly. The judge awarded her for this wonderful work with a qualification, very good. With this result she obtain 4th place in our battalion. And although Sebastiana also did great and even fixated a couple beautiful partridges, it was this time my error that a qualification was lost. A learning moment... that sure will be included in a next field trail. On 21 april we held our Ala D'Oro family day. A super great day in Putten, soon on our page a photo report of this lovely day.

15-02-2019The hustle and bustle of working life makes that time flies. First a look back by last January. At the begin of January we were invited with Sebastiana to join the dog of the year Show. Unfortunately we had to cancel at the last minute. The night before we went to a restaurant and got food poisoning. We were really disapointed that we could not make it. Now we must ensure that our Bass gets another chance to represent herselves. We're going to do our best to achieve that. 20 January we were present at the hunting ability test, we saw some nice dogs working. Our Bess and Brogio took home, with flying colors, their hunting ability certificate.
